About Me


Mastering the French Language - and Learning how to shop for groceries for only person and one weekend at a time ;D


Uhhhh... so O.K. I'll try. I guess I am very open minded person who loves to travel. Further more, I love to get to know new people and their life stories for that reason I always wanted to learn many different languages. 2008/2009 I have spent with a host family in Ann Arbor, MI, USA and attended there High School which is why my English is quite good. At the moment, I try to repeat this trick by passing a European Volunteer Service (EVS) in the European Capital Strasbourg. Furthermore, I know little tiny bits of Spanish. What else, ... I would describe myself as pretty creative person - not talented - but I love any form art! I grew up in the Bavarian Alps, so somehow I am really attached to the Mountains and I guess Nature in general. Therefore, I am also really engaged and interested in sustainability, environmental matters and politics for that matter.


Seize the moment - and learn to enjoy the little things in life!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Unfortunately, I haven't had any chance to participate, yet since until recently I still lived with my parents and they didn't allow me to offer a coach. But generally, I love the idea of coach surfing and as soon as I have my first own apartment or room, I am definitely going to offer my own. At moment however, I only can invite people for taking a coffee in the beautiful center city of Strasbourg, since I am not allowed to let any people into the place where I live right now (it's part of the school where I pass my volunteer service).


Sadly, I looked in vain for a coach in the area of San Francisco when I traveled through the US in July. But I guess, I should have updated my profile earlier to have a greater chance to convince somebody of my kind, interesting, polite and fun personality ;D


Arts (of any kind)and Literature
Hiking, Mountain Biking, Rock Climbing, Snowboarding, ...
Traveling and Languages
I would love to learn how to play the guitar!
... and how to dance Salsa, etc.
(Isn't that a nice broad hint for you ;D)
Generally, I love to meet new people and their stories.
I am also interested in sustainability and political matters.

Music, Movies, and Books

Too many to list :D

Teach, Learn, Share

I can offer my German and English language skills. Further, since I am living in Strasbourg for the next 10 months, I can offer to show visitors the not so touristic spots for drinking a coup of french coffee. Not speaking of my excellent company ;D
